I guess you could say I am tooting my own horn. My story, The Odd Couple made it into this book.
"Sometimes no matter how unintentionally you toss groceries onto a shelf, the two ingredients that work well together end up side by side, like a package of spaghetti and jar of Ragu. Bill is methodical and likes all of his canned goods and every other aspect of his life to be in order. My pantry was like my life: groceries tossed haphazardly on a shelf, corn curls unravelling in cellophane bags, and way more chocolate products than healthy foods. "
I was afraid to allow him into my pantry after observing his. We each still have our own way of putting groceries away, but no matter how we stack it, our love has held up for twenty-three years.
This book will be available on May 29th
